So, a few times in the past week, I've been blacking out. I don't know if that's the correct term. Basically, I can't see anything and everything is black and I get this huge headache and feel really dizzy, but once I sit down, I'm pretty much okay. It might be because I'm standing up too fast, but I'm not sure. I've experienced this before, probably 10 times in the last 6 months, I would say. And I don't know if it's connected, but I've been getting a lot of headaches lately. . .But I've always gotten headaches. They just seem worse lately. I don't know. I was just wondering if the whole not-seeing-anything was anywhere near normal.
